Just doing 120000 Book service on Ve commodore series 2, it says change spark plugs. Our car has only done 57000 , not even half. Am I right in not changing then at this stage, waiting to get a few more km's .
Thanks

If that’s genuine k’s on the clock, then they should still be good. Leave them be. Plugs aren’t like they were in older cars when we would change or check the gaps on them almost as often as an air filter.

It's probably not urgent for you yet but you can get a set of decent plugs fairly cheap if you shop around so there's no need to wait too long.

Yeah kms are right, had car it since new. I do remember in the day, cleaning plugs with files and glass paper , or getting them sandblasted at local garage, and gap them. Used to make a huge difference. Showing my age now. These days they last 100000kms. and no gaping. Car even tunes itself.
The AC Delco ones all right or should I go exotic and get NGK? :)
